    Hey guys,

    Custom ordered a road case from RCG (Road Case Guys) about an hour north of me, and it arrived today.

    Fitted for my Diezel VH4, which is currently dead. :)lol:) And also has 10 spaces of rack.

    It's not all hooked up yet, so no OMG LITES JA? pictures. But either way.

    Gear list includes :


    2009 Diezel VH4
    Peavey 6505+
    Mesa 4x12 Recto
    Mesa 2x12 Recto w/ Greenbacks

    Furman PL-8 II
    Fractal Axe-FX Ultra
    KORG DTR-2000
    ISP Decimator Pro Rack G
    Shure PGX14 Wireless
    DBX 131 (selling)
    Voodoo Labs Ground Control


    As for the case, it's built damn well, and is surprisingly light considering the size. Feels quite solid, and it's good quality componentry.
    Even has a rubber side handle further up for easier lifting.
    Check them out! Road Case Guys


    Enjoy!

    :metal: Looks good!

    And also a big thumbs up for Cliff @ RCG. He's built a couple of cases for me and his build quality really is great. Very easy guy to deal with as well. I'll be getting him to build me a 8 space shock rack very shortly.....

    I would too with all that gear :D


    It's also not very hard to find deals. The key is patience


    And about the rig, SUPER jealous. I usually see the head on bottom and the rack up top

    Thanks dudes!

    For anyone who is interested, the Axe-FX will be used for effects.

    I was certainly hoping you weren't using a $4000 amp loaded to the brim with features simply for powering an AxeFX.

    I'm a self professed cynical asshole but even I don't make that big of an assumption.

    wow thats a really sweet setup dude! You must be happy with it.
    When you have the cash I'd swap out that PGX though, I used one for a few years and it would always mess with my low end. Picked up a line6 G90 and I'm never going back

    Definitely been thinking about it.
    I'm pretty sure I lost the transmitter for the PGX as well. :lol:

    so, you're using the AXE FX only for effects? Does the axe's das metal come close to the real thing? I have the real bogner uberschall rev blue and the axe gets very close!

    For now anyways.
    Might do some layering later.

    It does sound decently close, but nothing really beats the full sound of the 6550 loaded VH4 going through a 6x12 setup of V30's and Greenbacks.

    Well, Mesa 2x12 and a Mesa 4x12.
    No the full deal, but plenty enough.
